As a Pro 550/900 owner I see nothing wrong with that.
My Pro 550 I felt were by far worth more then the $150 I paid for, they sounded like $200+ headphones with my Xonar DG.
I also do a lot of competitive gaming, blueray movie watching, and music of all genres.
You should be set for a while, or at least until you have the urge to upgrade once you start noticing the tiniest details and start imagining how higher headphones would sound like.
